Man on bike crashes into cop, offers him marijuana

Posted: Updated:
ATHENS, TN (WRCB) -

A man on a bicycle was arrested Monday after he collided with an McMinn County deputy and then offered her drugs.

Athens police arrested Jerrald Edwards Monday night; he's charged with public intoxication.

Edwards hit the deputy with his bicycle, and then failed a field sobriety test, after the officer noticed his slurred speech and glossy eyes.

Edwards admitted that he had been drinking, and then invited the deputy to smoke marijuana with him.

Police say he was "very belligerent and aggressive" in transport to jail.

Edwards is being held on a $500 bond.
